The Nurse Clinic

Introduction

At the Nurse Clinic the focus is on “development of nursing that is centered on the people who receive care.” At the same time, the Nurse Clinic provides an environment for practical nursing research targeted at all people living in a specific community, independent of age group or health condition.

Research projects are highly specialized, targeting specific citizen groups and health issues, like pregnant women and their families, families who have lost a baby in the perinatal period, families with infants or older children, elderly people with dementia and the family members who take care of them, elderly people wishing to know more about fall prevention, elderly people with chronic respiratory failure, exchanges between elderly people and elementary school students who normally do not have opportunities for intergenerational interactions, women with reproductive concerns like infertility, and people from the community who wish to learn more about maintaining their own health. These projects are all managed under a system with the unique naming of People-centered Care (PCC), and activities are conducted in cooperation with ordinary citizens, under the research theme of citizen-led nursing practice.
